The Lamborghini Miura Bible is a Great source,I Love this Book! Great Photography and Archive Photos as well in-depth history.Well-Written,My only compliant would be That even though the Jota is covered(The Original) there is no color photos only the Archive photos and no Jota Replicas or Replicas covered period.The book is very Much Miura SV,I would have like to have seen More Jota Coverage and the Jota SVR Replicas as well as Replicas in General. I understand the Author Prefers the Miura's "Pure" lines as opposed to the Jota.I also would have like to have seen More Photographs and bigger spreads,yes I am aware it has plenty of both but I have no qualms with this great book. I tried to email the author regarding getting the book signed but he never got back to me I know he is busy(in The Restoration Business and Collector).I hope he comes out with another Miura Book since there is mention of perhaps a Future Miura book according to Mr.Sackey in the book if more Information comes to Light.The Publisher Veloce did a Splendid job as they do with most of their books and the book covers Chassis,Colors,Options,some notable Owners Like Miles Davis/Sinatra Etcera,The Author is also willing the admit the car's faults besides it's beauty,How to Maintain and How to find one and which Model to find(SV of Course!).Overall, I highly Recommend it as this was When Lamborghini Had Beautiful Cars and not the Volkswagen Owned Cars of today.(with some exceptions) and when Styling was better than today's cars and I am 31 I can appreciate Cars of then compared to now.

Like the Miura, this book is beautiful. Fittingly, it is a large, serious, heavy book with high gloss pages to fully capture the beauty of the subject, but also has detailed technical discussions of all the models, including rare factory test beds like the mythical JOTA. It isn't a puff piece, however. Joe takes an honest look at the Miura (certainly not a perfect car) from the standpoint of a lifelong enthusiast who has to deal with the practical realities of ownership. I highly look forward to Joe's upcoming Ferrari 288 GTO bible!! And any other book he writes, for that matter.

I've been in love with these cars since I saw one on the cover of Road & Track magazine in 1971. I've understood for some time the cars were flawed and underdeveloped. But what they did good they did very, very good, indeed. Unfortunately I never achieved the financial means to own one, so this beautiful book (and my Ducatis) will have to do. If you love these cars too, then you need this book. It is a quality piece, has great pictures and very informative text. It is the best a book can be.

Excellent and numerous photographs, useful text containing much original information on the poorly-documented Miura, of
which the writer owned three versions, all in the distant past, when the roads of Europe had no speed limits and little traffic.
Although experienced with the Ferrari 250GT racing berlinetta, no road car of the time could match it. At 150mph (on the
autobahn), it still had tremendous acceleration in reserve, literally leaping forward with no hesitation whatsoever!
Congratulations to Mr. Joe Sackey, and thank you for all your do-dilligence. This book is long overdue...

Although the title is somewhat presumptuous, this is actually an excellent book. There are a couple of things that make this book unique among Lamborghini books. First, Sackey is not only a huge Miura enthusiast and evangelist, but has also owned and restored several Miura SVs, so his writing is based not just on great research (which he's obviously done) but experience in ownership and restorations. Second, he has taken a lot of effort to find period photos that haven't been published before. Most Lamborghini books recycle many of the period photos, but this book only reuses a few. It includes a serial number listing, which is more accurate than the one in the Coltrin book, but Sackey doesn't list which cars were reissued, nor which numbers were P400s, S's, and SVs, or total production counts (although it does list counts for the SV). Perhaps this is a very difficult goal given poor factory records and cars being changed over the years. I'd like to see more descriptions of P400 and S cars. Joe has owned SVs and the book seems biased toward that variant. Overall, a great book and a "must have" for Miura fans.

It's in my coffe table not just as a nice cover but I read it at least 2 times a year. The Muira is my favorite car of all time, this book does it justice

A fantastic book on this legendary car; the only book in recent times on this iconic car. This is a must have for any classic car enthusiast.
Beautiful photography and interesting text; the author certainly knows his subject.
